+Fox News That excuse just makes him look like a greater buffoon. Either way he can't be taken seriously. Let's just move on.
 
No, it would have been easy for him to check on her welfare.  I believe he was part of the "hoax" and should be expelled from the university.
 
So the media hypes up his first lie and now you're hyping up his second. Who cares!? I didn't care when everyone thought it was true. 
 
This is a cool idea.  I think I will develop an elaborate girlfriend hoax for myself.  I've spent a lot of time thinking about how to cast myself as a victim, and this could be my route to the victimhood designation that I so richly deserve.  Then, I can set about the business of monetizing that designation.  Poor me....
 
It's OK, Manti, Marcia Brady had a fake boyfriend and the world was quick to forgive her (though I don't recall that Mike and Carol Brady claimed to have met George Glass).
 
Question: Who cares? In 150 years we will all look back on this and laugh anyway.
 
I think he was part of the hoax.  But honestly, so what?  He lied to the media and they gobbled it up.  Is there a crime he committed?  Did he even violate a school rule by making up a story to garner more fame?
 
Can Fox cover a story that is actually relevant today. Maybe something on the hostages in Algeria? There seems to be a disproportionate level of coverage on a lie that has no significant impact on the world. Just my 2 cents.
 
This is ridiculous.  I had to read from hearing all the hype about it and now I wish I wouldn't have. You can definitely tell when news is hard to come by when the Media reports and blows up on a story like this.  It's not just Fox, this is all over ESPN as well.  Never a dull moment in News!  
 
Yawn....please wake me up when +Fox News posts something to G+ actually worth reading.
 
I have wondered why this is a story in the first place.Either this guy is a liar or got punked by professionals. So what? If he is a liar, he has shot himself in the the foot and has lost some serious bucks in the draft.
